Torreys Pk. - "Dead Dog" Couloir


Front Range - CO

Torreys Pk. - 14,267’

“Dead Dog” Col


We nailed this one! Untouched, untracked and pristine. We hoped the large east face of Torreys would provide shelter from the days strong west winds… and it sure did… strong winds all morning until we got the the base of the face. We also had intermittent cloud coverage most of the day keeping the snow in the col cold and dry!
